Recently the Neptune Regatta was held with some 20 boats it showed a positive sign for future events since the past three year Plandemic that has stifled the boating and tourism Industry, not just here but throughout the world.
Back home here in Bali on a cool Sunday afternoon I’ve found some time to tell you about our 2023 Sailing event.
The dates, times and route chosen is to attract more yachts travelling west around the world.
Broadly speaking this Inaugural event will take time for traction and I probably should have planned this early last year, but I couldn’t be sure covid would remain an issue which has badly effected Marina Del Ray since we first officially opened six months before it began anyway, I have always been meaning to fix the current Sailing Indonesia Rallies particularly since I been made aware of the negative chatter from participants over the year.
The course used is far from conducive for enjoyable and safe sailing from the east Coast of Australia.
Our unnamed event at this stage will be sponsored by our parent company which will build two more Marinas at the east and west borders of Indonesia and the center remaining at Marina Del Ray, where plans are afoot to build a first-class dockyard, fuel Terminal and Superyacht births and the expansion of our current Resort Hotel with 24 new one- and two-bedroom resorts which my company will guarantee a 7% return on your investment.

The chart shows sailors leaving Bundaberg Australia at the end of the official cyclone season in May and then arriving in Thailand in time to cross the remaining Indian Ocean in February the following year with wind, less plastic and fishing and commercial traffic yet anchoring in the best islands in Indonesia along your sailing journey with no more than an average of 320 nautical miles between anchorages while in Indonesia.
We have deliberately chosen Cape Wessel on the Northern Territory as a preceding week or two to explore Australia’s famous Arnhem land and its own chain of incredible islands which are Authentic Aboriginal coastline before arriving in Darwin to catch up on some great shopping before your next four day sail to the first island of Roti in South Timor Indonesia.
Yes I can here might say its going back to the old Rally Route of years gone by and it was chosen like that for many good reasons however commercial interest in recent year has taken over the good thrill of sailing in pristine seas with amazing anchorages where the south east trade winds blow all the way up the west Sumatran coast sailing through hundreds of incredible islands before clearing out on Indonesia’s first island called Sabang where our next Marina will be built. This route avoids the arduous risky Malacca straight by crossing only 220 nautical miles to Phuket Thailand.
There will be a webinar held on March the 13th at 1400 hours, please visit https://www.downunderrally.com/sailing-to-indonesia to register if you like to listen and participant in this future event which will essentially be free other than you clearance and visa’s which my company will help and provide sponsorship to any crew participating in this exciting event.
